Since the movie takes place on Christmas, I've decided to finally getting around to marathoning my Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya DVD set. Watched the show once before a long while ago on Crunchyroll. I found it amusing that in typical Haruhi fashion the DVD packs in this set weren't even in order in the box. Even with the numbering I'm unsure of which order to watch the episodes this time around. The broadcast order isn't chronological, so there's different ways to watch it.

After the Christmas excitement is over I'll be watching my Tari Tari BD.

So glad to see another fan. I love this show to death, and I think the second season is better than the first. I love the manga, too. As a matter of fact, I am suffering from serious Noragami withdrawal right now. The next volume of the manga will arrive next week, but I think next Friday's episode is the last of the anime, and then what? *Sniffle.* I will probably have to illegally watch the OVA!

I've been postponing reading the manga so I can get that sense of watching something for the first time; Yeah, there is just one episode left, and the fourth OVA is coming out in... 80 something days? I'm going to be suffering from withdrawals for a loonngg time once I catch up with the manga, it's so good. It's not gonna be fun since I'm already experiencing KagePro withdrawals...
So this stays a little on topic, I finished watching Paranoia Agent and watched the first episode of Bakemonogatari.

169 of One Piece. Man, this show takes forever to watch. My goal for Christmas Break is to finish episode 208. Man, that will be a lot of One Piece in a short amount of time. -_-

Finished Noragami Aragato. I gave this season a 10/10, because I think it was even stronger than the first season.

That said, I admit that I have a few quibbles. I feel like Hiyori was significantly underused for much of the season. Don't get me wrong; she still has a lot of plot significance. But I feel like she's becoming less of a fighter and more of a standard love interest. One of the things I had loved about the first season was that it had such a strong female lead. I liked that Hiyori was badass in her half-phantom form. And we saw a lot less of the kick-ass Hiyori this season.

Still, this is one of my favorite animes of all time. Season 3, please? Pretty please? :-) I love the manga, but I'm an animation fan at heart, and I'd love to see more of this show.

Yay! One of my favorites! I didn't believe Enoshima was a real place, but Mum looked it up online and found it. So when I was in the area, I took a 5 hour, multi-train type journey from Tohoku to the Tokyo area, where I spent 4 hours in Enoshima before making the trip back. Anyways, glad you enjoy it.

A certain friend tricked me into thinking This Boy Caught a Merman was a comedy short, while it's in fact an OVA for a straight-up yaoi story, complete with manly merman Isaki dramatically kissing girly boy "Shi-chan" and them confessing their love and speaking without honorifics. 2/5 I will get my friend back for this. EDIT: Evidently, I had this confused with another one that isn't a yaoi romance OVA, and that was what my friend recommended.

Before that I watched Nyan Koi, a typical lighthearted harem romcom with a few twists and plenty of its fair share of laughs and enjoyable characters. It's similar to the more recent harem romcom Nisekoi. There's enjoyment to be had, but as per the usual with this genre, don't expect any resolution given the manga's ongoing status.


And now I'll be watching And Yet the Town Moves. I doubt it will live up to the manga given its 2010 release (the manga's apparently ongoing) but I'm sure I'll love it anyway.

Is that the one where the mer-dude is in the tub? Crunchy described it as a comedy-short, but I've never worked up the nerve to check. Thank you for your sacrifice. >_<

I liked a lot of Hunter x Hunter, but I got burned out by the Shonen style. Casual death is an automatic -.5 points from any show for me, so that was the straw that broke the camel's back for me.

I take back what I said, what I watched was a completely different show about a handsome merman and a boy, apparently. What you're talking about and what this friend was talking about was Orenchi no Furo Jijo. I'm an idiot. >_<

You still owe your friend a revenge. Merman in my Tub is not funny and fairly suggestive. I didn't get very far into it before I dropped it.

I can give HxH a pass on a lot of the death, what shows that the hunter exam is extremely dangerous, but yeah, there is a lot of casual killing.

Good to know about the both shows. I suppose it should be fairly obvious that shows about mer-dudes with male leads just are no. After Muromi I should probably just make all mermaids a no-go, but I want to find out about My Bride is a Mermaid first.

You jogged my memory, skreyola. What I mean by casual death is when a person's final moments get no reaction from anyone, esp. the good guys, especially when it's gruesome or pitifully unfair. Now that I remember, the hunter exam wasn't like that. I'll have to try HxH again.

Yeah, good luck. While I didn't find anything in My Bride is a Mermaid particularly dirty, the bits with the father (especially after the location shift) just got on my nerves. But YMMV, so give it a whirl, I guess.

Oh. No, I don't remember anything so far where a person died horribly without any reaction from the other people. Those that have been like, "wow, that guy just murdered the other guy" have been pretty much all one-on-one scenes, so there was nobody to react. And as mentioned, there've been times where the danger inherent in the situation have caught up to people... and sometimes those don't get any reaction, but the others are often rather preoccupied with their own survival, and everyone knows going in that this is incredibly dangerous... like hunting down dinosaurs. When someone gets eaten, you can kind of think, "That is what they signed up for, even though they hoped they'd make it out alive." And while that's harsh, these people had to jump through 37 hoops just to get in on this carnage, so it's hard to feel too broken up about them. It helps that none of it's real, I guess. Anyway, death and mayhem aside, the show is very well put together, very clever, and fairly enjoyable all around.

I've been watching Peacemaker Kurogane. I wasn't going to, since MAL rated it R for violence and profanity, but went ahead and checked it out. (dub first, though only the first four episodes are dubbed) First episode was pretty bad with violence, but past that there hasn't been too much. episode for ticked me off though, and I stopped that episode halfway though because it's crap. I hate their Saito Hajime, he's some kinda SPOILER: Highlight text to read: psychic/medium and that's NOT okay. Continued anyway since most shows would often have a bad episode or two, and now I'm at like 8, haha. I'm mostly here for Okita, but it's pretty funny, and though language is common, it's not bad enough to be rated R for that, that would just be one of MAL's default descriptions for R. So I'm taking it one episode at a time I guess. Of course, I found the show and wanted to watch it because or RK, which is my favorite (and also the reason why I can handle some more violence than I used to), and more Shinsengumi/Bakumatsu/Meiji Era stuff is fun. One thing I really dislike is their tendency to use the term 'demon'... (now, it doesn't have actual demons, it's just sometimes what will be said of a character because he kills so easily or is so harsh). Idk. One episode at a time...
Just gonna stick a couple favorite quotes here.

"You can die at anytime. But living takes true courage. I'm living too, that I am. To repent for all the lives I took." -Kenshin Himura

"I would rather die as Blues than live forever as someone else." -Proto Man

Weird, they seem to be about dying. XD

Up to episode 17 Macross Frontier. SPOILER: Highlight text to read: Alto and Ranka better end up together or else I'm gonna be really disappointed. At very least, Alto and Sheryl better NOT end up together. Not really a fan of them as a couple.. The show as a whole is pretty good, but kinda weird.

Episode 2 of Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day. I can tell already that this one is gonna be sad, so I'm not watching this during my free time at my job for obvious reasons, lol.

Episode 17 of IGPx. Still really enjoy it.

Episode 4 of Speed Grapher. Pretty good show so far. Allot darker than most of the anime I've watched lately.

Finished Watamote. Um, interesting show, lol. Even though its hilarious, I can't say I completely enjoyed this one. Even though Tomoko is incredibly selfish and brings most of her problems onto herself, I couldn't help but feel sorry for her, and SPOILER: Highlight text to read: by the end of the show, seeing her fail over and over again to get any sort of attention from her fellow classmates just got depressing. I feel like there were a few moments of hope for poor Tomoko throughout the show, but in the end, there really isn't that much of a payoff, and it feels allot like a slap in the face to the viewer, lol. I enjoyed it overall. 7/10.

My favorite character from Watamote was Yuu Naruse.

Oh, you just wait! If you aren't crying yet, you will be! But seriously, it's a great show.

As for me, I just got a copy of the long-awaited US release of Library War. Watched episodes 1 & 2, and I like it a lot. I had read a couple of volumes of the manga version, but I think the anime is funnier.

AnoHana will make you cry, for sure, but in a good way. It's so sweet.
Not like other shows I could mention that just rip your heart out and stomp on it.
No, AnoHana will make you cry, but you'll finish the show with a big smile on your face, too.

Watching ソ・ラ・ノ・ヲ・ト (Sound of the Sky) on DVD. I'm liking it so far and I can tell I'm going to love it the more I watch. Likeable characters and a soothing but mysterious atmosphere. But I have so many questions about this weird setting that I'm guessing will go largely unanswered by the end of the anime given its slice of life nature.

Watched Love Lab on BD before that, a fantastic comedy that at the end even made me cry a little because of spoilers. It's genuinely funny, cute, and has a lot of heart. Loved every minute of it. Would rewatch in a heartbeat.

Before that it was あっちこっち or Here and There on BD. Loved it too. Cute everywhere. Was not expecting my favourite character to be Mayoi but she is just so funny and cute. Was kind of weird that she never once showed her eyes.

I also started watching 教え!ギャル子ちゃん! on the side, the short airing this season. I can't say I'd recommend it to anyone... In the two short episodes it's had so far, the characters talked about breast size, nipple size, tampons vs pads and if that relates to virginity, whether or not ギャル子 herself was pooping when she spent five minutes in the bathroom, the color of panties, and a whole bunch of other inappropriate stuff. A really classy show, amirite? (Though let's be honest-- that's probably the sort of thing real teenage girls talk about.) It's a shame, because I was foolish enough to believe they would actually do something with the premise-- a regular slice of life title with these three very different girls that seem like their personalities would conflict including one who's a ギャル, but they actually get along and have fun? That sounds like a good show to me.
